LOS ANGELES (AP) – Hotel heiress and “The Simple Life” reality TV star Paris Hilton is reportedly engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis.

“They are happy and excited,” Hilton spokesman Rob Shuter told People magazine, which reported the engagement Monday on its Web site.

Latsis proposed to the 24-year-old Hilton Wednesday after she returned from a three-week publicity tour in Europe to promote her horror flick “House of Wax” and her new fragrance.

The couple marked the engagement Saturday with a barbecue for 75 friends and family at their Hollywood Hills home, People reported.

No wedding date has been set. It would be the first marriage for both.
